New year new skincare. How I changed up my routine Garnier Moisture Bomb



If you've been living under a rock for the last few months you won't have seen the hubbub about the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask. I've talked about budget sheet masks in the past but this is the first one I've seen available in the UK that didn't have to be imported. At £1.50 per mask it was a big deal. I didn't jump on the bandwagon though because I've never had much luck with Garnier products before and I had quite the backlog of masks to go through myself. 

Then I saw this set available at Christmas from Tesco. The set contained a 3-in-1 day cream and a gel formula night cream plus retailing separately at £7.99 each plus one of the famous sheet masks. 

The set was £7.50. 

Had to be done!

Now the mask itself I was not impressed with. For something that boasts 7 days worth of serum in one go I did not expect to feel dry immediately after. Thankfully this is a team effort and I immediately applied the night cream. It was a revelation. The silicone based formula (we all know how much I love silicone!) means that the product glides over the skin so you feel an immediate difference whilst all of the pomegranite and other fruit extracts (found in all three products) take care of the long term effects. It is definitely "the bomb"! 

I wasn't expecting to but I love these products on my skin and I actually look forward to applying the night cream every evening. As with all skin care I trialled the two moisturisers daily for about a month adding the mask in mid month to get an idea of how it would work with the other products. I may not be fussed on the mask itself but I will definitely be repurchasing the two moisturisers. It's rare that I find a high street moisture range that actually packs the punch that they promise to pack but in my opinion Garnier have really struck it right with these two.

BOOM.

  1. I love Garnier micellar water with oil, it's one of my all time favs above high end cleansers but I too don't do well with Garnier moisturisers etc either so will look out for the night cream moisture bomb x x

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

Ciaté Mini Mani Month Advent Calendar Week 1

So far I'm in love with Cupcake Queen, Halo & Caberet. My least favourite is Cutie Pie which despite 3 coats is the sheerest polish I've ever come across!!













Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…
